Why This Color?

We spent last week in the Caribbean, and once again, I was drawn into the turquoise, teal, and pale blue colors of the sea. Sitting in my chair, hours upon hours, was actually relaxing. Oh, we walked. And ate. And drank. But mostly we stared at the water.

I am not surprised how many of my cards and prints are done in shades of teal.

I Need Snow


This is it.

All the snow we’ve had this year.

Now, I’m not a snow person. Give me a beach, warm sun, and cawing seagulls anytime.

But I do love the occasional snow day, the tucking in, the lazy sit-in-front-of-the-fire day that is usually unexpected and a delicious surprise. So I’m waiting. And waiting.

In the meantime, my energies are going to Valentine’s Day cards for the shop, more volunteering with Fredericksburg Main Street, and working with young folks after school on writing and writing strategies.

I’m trying to be patient.
